What a creative and gorgeous gift idea! I love that these are made from string and paperclips. There is a full tutorial on how to assemble these at Evie S.
To give the earrings a little more character, you could add some beads to the string. Remember to keep the weight in mind. You don’t want to make these too heavy to wear. Try using multiple colors of string to give these a little more pizzaz!
Just a side note: I actually paid $13 dollars for a pair of earrings similar to these. Now I know they can be made for so much less!
